A conversation with Tarun Khanna, Director of the Harvard South Asia Institute & Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor, Harvard Business School
Professor Khanna will speak about SAI’s role as a bridge between Harvard faculty and South Asia, as well as his research on emerging markets and mobile technology, coordinated by SAI.
The use of mobile phones has become ubiquitous in South Asia – not only as a tool to close the information gap, but a powerful device to promote economic growth in emerging markets. Professor Khanna’s research hopes to broaden the understanding of mobile technology and how it can enable economic and social mobility, particularly for those most in need through improvements in healthcare, education, and financial services.
